I was reading model answers on CAE writing part and in one of the essays found out a grammar structure I misunderstand:
In my opinion, whilst any facility would be a positive improvement, I have distinct reservations about the addition of a history museum to the town. To begin with, I think that museums are rather dry, boring places and a new museum would be my last choice as a solution to liven up the town. Moreover, a history museum would have a very limited appeal and only be of interest to history buffs and would be unlikely to appeal to the town's younger generation.
In bold, why should we use here this grammar structure, but not "live up"?
